Mercedes-Benz is serious in introducing alternative solutions for transportation even in its utility range.
The pricing and specification has been announced for the Mercedes-Benz eVito, which offers 85 (70) kW of power, 300 Nm of torque, a 92-mile average range and a six hour charging time, based on three-phase charging.
The front-wheel drive eVito has been aligned with the current Vito range and offers a standard specification that mirrors the PURE model line, including: a height and rake adjustable steering wheel; Hill Start Assist; electrically adjustable heated exterior mirrors; sliding doors on both sides of the vehicle; wood flooring; and an adaptive brake light. In addition to the PURE specification, the eVito exclusively offers: Mercedes PRO connect; heated drivers’ seat; TEMPMATIC air conditioning; a four-metre charging cable; and a CanTrack vehicle tracker, all as standard too.
Available in two lengths, and priced from £39,895 for the eVito Van PURE L2, and £40,415 for the eVito Van PURE L3, the vehicle is also eligible for the Office For Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) Grant. This means that customers can benefit from a 20% reduction on the vehicle purchase price, up to a maximum of £8,000.
The L2 model offers 6.0 m3 cargo volume, 2,277 kg kerb weight, 3,200 kg GVW, and a payload of 923 kg. The L3 offers 6.6 m3 cargo volume, 2,302 kg kerb weight, 3,200 kg GVW, and a payload of 898 kg.
